On June 15th, EST, VIGORPOOL, a company that delivers portable, green energy solutions, will launch the Captain 1200, its new flagship product, on Indiegogo. With a continuous output power of 2400W and a peak power of 4800W, the power station provides a parallel function, allowing customers to connect two units and quadruple the capacity to 2560Wh. It also has a dual rapid charging mechanism that allows it to charge completely in 1.5 hours. When the Captain 1200 is combined with solar panels, it forms a green solar generator that produces safe, clean, pollution-free, renewable electricity. It is also more durable and safer than similar items with similar power capacities. Its battery will last around nine years if used and recharged every day.


FEATURES OF VIGORPOOL CAPTAIN 1200:


1. Perform a parallel function

The introduction of the Parallel Function marked a watershed moment in the mobile power supply business. When two Captain 1200s are connected in parallel, the capacity is increased to 2560Wh, and the continuous output power is increased to 2400W. The Captain 1200's longer battery life and higher power output make it more suited for a wider range of mobile power applications.


2. Longer-lasting and more cost-effective

The Captain 1200 employs a lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery, which is both safer and more robust. In comparison to ternary lithium batteries, which lose roughly 20% of their charge capacity after 500 cycles, LiFePO4 batteries withstand 3500+ charge cycles before reaching 80% capacity. Because of the improved durability, even if the unit is used and recharged every day, it will last for 9 years without losing substantial capacity. As a result, the requirement for product replacement and recurring purchases is greatly decreased.


3. A Portable Energy Station on Wheels

Because of its high output and 12 different types of power ports, the Captain 1200 is compatible with 99 percent of equipment and appliances on the market. There's also a built-in wireless charging station for charging cordless phones on the road.


4. It Only Takes 1.5 Hours To Recharge

The Captain 1200 accomplishes actual fast charging while keeping the unit and battery safe thanks to the smart built-in BMS system. The Captain 1200 can be charged by both the main charger and the solar panel at the same time to accomplish Duel Fast Charging, which takes only 1.5 hours to complete.


5. Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) (UPS)

Any devices plugged into the Captain 1200 will run straight from the power supplied by the outlet if it is kept plugged into a wall outlet. The Captain 1200's UPS feature restores power within 10 milliseconds following a power outage, safeguarding the operation of important equipment such as household freezers, CPAPs, and computers.


6. BMS Protection System with Three Layers

VigorPool prioritizes safety beyond anything else. The VigorPool Captain 1200 features a three-layer BMS system to assure the safety of the user and the equipment, whereas similar products only enable two-layer BMS protection.


7. A Sustainable Energy System

The VigorPool Captain 1200 may be combined with 100W, 200W, or 400W solar panels to create a solar generator that can be used anywhere. Furthermore, its built-in MPPT charge controller intelligently adjusts the charging power, resulting in a 30 percent higher solar charging efficiency than standard solar charging systems.


8. Intelligent Control System

Users may check battery data, control charge and discharge operations, and access other options via their phone or tablet using the VIGORPOOL APP.
